"I like coming to Buckie Yarns. I helped in the shop with the customers and my knitting and stocking up shelves. I like getting messages helping other people. I like putting the wool out. I am making a pin cushion. I need a bit of help to the way to do different cross stitch. I like coming here tidying up before I go home. I like my jobs. I get 35B bus Elgin to Buckie and get the 35A bus on the way home."
